Hello, I’m Laurie and I specialise in helping women who want to feel less anxious, be more confident and enjoy life more.
Lack of confidence and self-doubt can show up as anxiety, negative thinking, emotional-eating, eating disorders, drinking too much alcohol, procrastination, hoarding, stress, sleep problems etc.
Perhaps you experience self-doubt in social situations, finding it very daunting to join a group of people because you worry that you’re too quiet or you’ll say the wrong things and people will judge you negatively.
Possibly you’re ok in social situations but at work you feel nervous around certain people, afraid of doing presentations or held back by the fear that you’ll fail in some way.
Or it might be that you’re held back in life generally because you don’t feel good enough or worthy enough to achieve the things that you’d really like to do.
Anxiety and lack of confidence can be a problem for many reasons and all of us experience it in some areas of our lives. If we compare ourselves to other people who appear to be confident, bold and strong without really seeing what underlies their persona, it knocks our confidence further.
Working with me in a confidential, non-judgmental space, using modern therapeutic techniques can enable you to change your mindset and move forward in your life with more clarity, confidence and at ease with your own thoughts and feelings.
I am an experienced and fully qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Master NLP Practitioner and Life Coach.
I graduated from the prestigious Quest Institute London having gained my Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP Master Practitioners Certificate and Hypnotherapist Practitioner Diploma which is externally verified by the National Council of Hypnotherapy and accredited by the NCFE. I’m also a member of QCHPA.
If you’d benefit from feeling less anxious, more resilient and more confident please contact me for a telephone conversation to learn more about how I work and how I may be able to help you.
Here are some reviews from my previous clients:
“Laurie’s warm and friendly demeanour immediately puts you at ease and I’m so glad I chose Laurie as my hypnotherapist. I have come on in leaps and bounds since. My confidence has improved greatly and I’m already seeing the benefit in all areas of my life such as work, making friends and generally being a happier and more engaged person with life! It really does work!” “Laurie is amazing I am so grateful for all her support. The hypnotherapy really helped me to put things to rest and move forward with my life which is priceless … I cannot recommend Laurie enough.”
“Laurie was a delight to work with to tackle the issues I needed to resolve. Her approach was sympathetic and tailored to my exact needs. I would highly recommend her and will certainly go back if I feel the need to again in the future.”
“This has to be one of the most worthwhile experiences of my life! My head is so much more peaceful, I feel confident in my skills and calmer and lighter inside. When I came to see Laurie I really felt like a lost cause and was sick of always reacting in the same way to stressful situations. I can’t believe the changes I have experienced. I feel so much more positive, calm, confident and capable of dealing with situations.”
“After trying multiple other avenues for help, including psychodynamic therapy, CBT and even some psychiatry, this is the first therapy that has actually helped me to change my habits and maintain those changes. I have maintained a healthy lifestyle now for 2 months, and have begun to see the rewards, having lost 4kg of weight over that timeframe.”
“Laurie Harvey has an exceptional approach to her clients, which is both caring, understanding and specific to your needs. She expects 100% effort from you and I feel gives 200% in return. I have suffered from serious problems since I was 13 plus and suffered from self harm, depression and anxiety and what the Drs termed as nervous breakdowns several times. Laurie does not attach labels to you, and looks at the problems. I had 3 sessions with Laurie over several weeks and I felt ready to face the world. I will not hesitate to go for a top up or if I faced a challenge that I felt needed instant assistance as I feel after all these years I have someone I can now trust.”
“Laurie is such a kind and caring woman. When I rang her to speak about booking the appointment she really re-assured me and made me feel so comfortable. She did an example of a session on the phone and I was instantly shocked at how someone so calm can make you feel a change within a matter of minutes. Laurie has massively helped me by listening to my needs and concerns! The sessions were amazing, I would go in feeling a little shy but at the end of the session I felt incredible. Overall I am so happy with the service I received. Laurie is a lovely lady who has really helped me build my confidence and feel good about maths again. I would highly recommended this fantastic service.”
